Holland Taylor, who starred with Laura on the 1998 science fiction drama The Truman Show, and Ozark Show director Chris Mundy presented the award to the artist.
“This is more frustrating than I thought it would be,” Laura said as she began her acceptance speech, in the Belfast Telegraph.
She continued, “I would have considered it a completely crazy talk, which would have been ridiculous, confusing and unfathomable.
“Even 30 years later, I can tell you that on a daily basis I feel quietly stunned and not quietly delighted to be embraced, not just by Los Angeles itself, but by the industries, companies, and people who call it home.

The Big C graduate said she was honored to serve the arts, which she described as a “medical, illustrative, and nourishing endeavour.”
She added, “So much in this world is a waste of time, we’re wasting what’s precious.
